Memorial Gathering planned for Connie Armstrong, Sat. Oct. 22, 11am

Connie’s daughter, Ruth, writes: Connie Armstrong, a long-time member of First Parish, died on Saturday September 24, 2016 at the age of 90. The heart attack that took her from us was entirely unexpected. Connie was active in the church from the mid1950’s until the mid ’80’s when she and her husband David mored to Brunswick Maine. She served as Church Secretary during the ministries of the Reverends Scovel, Boardman and Goddard; she was instrumental in the renovations and restoration of the church, and also spent long creative hours making Christmas ornaments out of hollowed eggs for the Harvest Fair.

Connie was preceded in death by her sister Patricia, (1972)  her brother Arnold (2015) and her husband David  (2013) She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Ruth and James Gibson, and Janet Armstrong and Gil Berke, four grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, and many dear ones whom she took into her family circle.

Memorial services will be held at the First Parish Church of Sudbury MA, on Saturday October 22 at 11 am, in the Commons.  Those wishing to make memorial gifts are invited to consider two organizations dear to Connie’s heart:
